YABT Presents to the Inter-American Council for Integral Development

On June 25th, 2013 the Young Americas Business Trust (YABT) presented the results of the Talent and Innovation Challenges of the Americas (TIC Americas 2013) program to the Inter-American Council for Integral Development (CIDI), an Organization of American States body directly answerable to the General Assembly, with decision-making power in matters of partnership for integral development. The purpose of CIDI is to promote cooperation among its Member States for the furtherance of their integral development and, in particular, to help eliminate extreme poverty. The session was lead by the CIDI Chair, Ambassador Beale and Mrs. Sherry Tross, Executive Secretary for Integral Development.

Luis Viguria, YABT's CEO, presented to the Council, highlighting the fact that the finals that were held in Antigua, Guatemala on June 2-3, 2013 saw participation from the top 32 teams, representing 19 countries and integrating the 6 winning teams from the Caribbean Innovation Challenge (CIC 2013). These were selected amongst a total of 2,187 teams from 33 OAS Member States. The TIC Americas 2013 winners were awarded in the Social, Economic and Environmental categories; in his speech Mr. Viguria mentioned: ""TIC Americas is a clear example of what we are promoting here at the OAS and YABT, a new generation of Sustainable Entrepreneurs: economically, environmentally and socially viable." He then outlined the next steps for YABT's programs including the new editions of TIC Americas and Eco-Challenge, the CIC as well as the new program, Eco-Entrepreneur, to be conducted in partnership with PepsiCo in August 2013.

The permanent missions of Bolivia, Canada, Guyana, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and the United States of America responded to YABT's presentation. In their comments, Guyana and Bolivia highlighted the importance of the programs carried out by the organization, while Canada, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and the United States of America made enquiries into YABT's initiatives and processes and expressed their interest in youth entrepreneurship.

On behalf of YABT, Mr. Viguria thanked the organizations, governments and partners, such as the Organization of American States and it's Permanent Missions, especially those of Guatemala and Barbados, PepsiCo, the United Nations Development Program Sub-regional Office for Barbados and the OECS, the Government of Israel for the support they provided to this year's TIC Americas and CIC 2013 programs, and consequently their involvement in the development of youth entrepreneurship in the region.
